I was just flipping through Crusher's Desert Tower book. Great history and pictures. I highly recommend picking up a copy.

Post up your tower shots!

Mario gave me that book the last day I saw him... to inspire many more adventures with him and Steph. I sure wish I would have gotten him to sign it.

It's a strange feeling going untied and dropping the rope once you commit, ha ha.

It's well written, well organized and just plain beautiful!

:-)

P.S. I do have some cool tower shots, but they're hard copy. . . not digi!
